Think Spring

Hello friends ☺ I hope you are seeing signs of Spring in your part of the world.  We are enjoying having windows and doors open to let in the beautiful weather.  If you are still experiencing more winter-like than spring-like conditions... this one is for you!

Some time ago Jill Foster, Penny Black's social media director, asked me if she could coordinate a schedule post with Penny Black's main blog using three of my cards. You can see the PB blog post HERE.  I didn't do that good with the whole coordination thing, I realize, because I failed to post my cards ... until today! ...but there is no time like the present right??

These happy Happy Birthday cards were created for three of my family members.  One of which is my dear ol Dad who will turn 90 in July!! His favorite color is blue and he has always loved his sweets! This treat will make him smile without raising his blood sugar! LOL

All of the supplies I used can be found in Penny Black's newest release, Timeless 2019. I know most of you have seen this great release because I have enjoyed seeing these great products popping up all over Blogland!  but in case you missed it you can view the entire collection HERE.

Have a wonderful day! and thank you so much for stopping by.

It's a TEA party with Penny Black!

It’s a “Party with Penny!”  You’re invited to join in the fun as Penny Black celebrates the release of their newest collection of stamps and dies, Timeless
And what better way to party than a blog hop!

You should have arrived here from Sherry Hester.   If you want to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog for a complete list of all of the blog hop participants.  

This stamp set is my cup of tea!! I would just love to see a hedgehog small enough to fit inside a teacup!! If I did I know he would have this exact same - adorable! expression on his face right!?. Giggles! 

There are a lot of possibilities in this sweet 4" x 3" stamp set.  It is already one of my favorite sets.

It wouldn’t be a party without a giveaway; right?  Penny Black is giving away a $50 shopping spree to the Penny Black online store to FIVE lucky winners.  To enter, leave a comment on any blog hop post (this one included). The giveaway closes on Sunday, March 10 at 11:59 PM PST and winners will be announced on the Penny Black blog on March 18.

Fun Friday with Patti & Penny

There are lots of fun things about Fridays but for me the best part about this Friday is promoting the new Timeless 2019 release from Penny Black.  

Cards don't get much easier to create than this one.  I cut an A2 card base, top panel and butterfly from the same card stock.  I stamped and embossed the butterfly with detail white embossing powder, added the sentiment - popped up the butterfly then attached the top panel with foam tape.

Here is another easy one in the same basic color combo.  I started off stenciling polka the dots and sentiment on a card front that had the corners trimmed on two sides.   This sweet little critter was stamped on a panel cut from Snowflake stitches and colored with Copic markers.  The top panel is popped up using foam tape.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! and that you get to spend it doing something you love.
